Home Prices: Where Will They Be in 5 Years?

My clients make good decisions because they are well-educated… the transaction is well-executed, and the CLOSING is well-delivered! Here’s a sample of the information I provide to my clients (short & sweet, just the meat – no fillers):

Today, many real estate conversations center on housing prices and where they may be headed. That is why I like the Home Price Expectation Survey.

Every quarter, Pulsenomics surveys a nationwide panel of over one hundred economists, real estate experts, and investment & market strategists about where they believe prices are headed over the next five years. They then average the projections of all 100+ experts into a single number.

The results of their latest survey:

Home values will appreciate by 4.0% over the course of 2017, 3.2% in 2018 and 3.0% the next three years (as shown below). That means the average annual appreciation will be 3.24% over the next 5 years.

The prediction for cumulative appreciation ticked up from 18.7% to 21.4% by 2021. The experts making up the most bearish quartile of the survey are projecting a cumulative appreciation of 10.2%.

In A Nutshell

Individual opinions make headlines but I believe this survey is a fairer depiction of future values. Who wouldn’t want to make an average of 21% on a 5 year investment?

The market is still appreciating. That means it’s good to be a buyer OR a seller at this time… If you are a seller your house has appreciated and you have significant equity in your house allowing you to MOVE UP to your dream home. If you are a buyer, you still have plenty of appreciation left in a new home and if purchasing your first home (at historically LOW interest rates) you are STILL making a great INVESTMENT!

Got questions?? I’ve got answers – let me add some value to your financial knowledge database! My clients make good decisions because they are well-educated, the transaction is well-executed, and the CLOSING is well-delivered!
